Please share how you got it working.   Regarding VLAN tagging, my
understanding is that each interface through which the frames pass
must support tagging.   Thus if the frame passes through a device that
does not support tagging then the tag information is lost.

I am also using KVM for my virtual appliances and in one of the
appliance scenario, I will have to use 2 VLANs on one the 'guest' VM's
